Pass On The Awareness

Guys, we seem to not want to go to the doctor. We fear sitting in that room waiting for a checkup. Yet it is better to be in the know. When was the last time you went for a physical? If it has been way too long for you to remember, maybe you should make an appointment sooner rather than later.

To help push you into the doctor’s office the USA Rugby, the Australian Rugby Union and Astellas Pharma have partnered to launch the #pass4prostate challenge. This is a social media campaign designed to generate awareness of prostate cancer and support a donation of up to $125,000 from Astellas to four research and advocacy organizations.

From now until the end of September in support of Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, you can record a video of you catching an inanimate object, mentioning why prostate cancer awareness is important to you and then passing that object, rugby-style, symbolically to a friend or family member. Astellas will donate $5 to prostate cancer advocacy organizations for every qualifying submission with the #pass4prostate hashtag posted to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, up to a maximum contribution of $125,000. Example videos from top professional rugby players, information on how to register to win rugby-themed prizes and further details can be found at www.pass4prostate.org.

Green Bay Packers Eddie Lacy Trades In His Cleats For A Saw

Eddie Lacy took a break from training camp and tried his hand in the sport of lumberjacking. He got some help from competitive lumberjacks Shana Verstegen and Cassidy Scheer at the Paul Bunyan Northwood’s Lumberjack Show in Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin. Lacy did some pole climbing, the two-man cross cut saw, and axe throwing.

This was part of the Gatorade Beat the Heat program, which aims to educate athletes on the importance of heat safety and staying hydrated during the hot summer months. Not only is Lacy now equipped with a new skill set, but he also learned firsthand that lumberjack athletes compete in similar conditions as football players – outside in the hot and humid weather, while losing a lot of sweat during training and competition.

Chevrolet Showcases Two New Trucks: Colorado Midnight Edition And Colorado Z71 Trail Boss

Chevrolet has a truck for you whether you are going on the street or on the trail. If you are in the market for a new ride you might want to check out either the 2016 Chevrolet Colorado’s Midnight Edition or Z71 Trail Boss.  The special editions will be in Chevrolet dealerships this fall, with distinctly tailored appearances that blend custom design cues with Colorado’s popular options and accessories. The Midnight Edition evokes the aesthetic of an urban tuner vehicle, while the Z71 Trail Boss is designed for terrain where the pavement ends.

“These are aggressive editions of one of the country’s hottest-selling truck, demonstrating the personalization that’s possible with Chevrolet accessories, whether it’s for the street, trail or both,” said Tony Johnson, Director, Truck Strategy. “As the Colorado continues to win over new customers, the new Midnight Edition and Z71 Trail Boss give them more choices and build on segment-leading capabilities and efficiency.”

Colorado Midnight Edition

Echoing the blacked-out design theme introduced on the popular Silverado Midnight Edition, the 2016 Colorado Midnight Edition casts an imposing stance. Offered exclusively in black, additional exterior details such as the grille, the bowtie emblem and the 18-inch aluminum wheels are also finished in black.  Additional content includes a spray-on bedliner and soft, folding tonneau cover – both in black, of course – and Chevrolet-logo sill plates.

The Colorado Midnight Edition is available on LT models with the extended and crew cab bodies, in 2WD or 4WD, and with the 2.5L and 3.6L engines. It will also be available with the all-new 2.8L Duramax turbo-diesel engine.

Colorado Z71 Trail Boss

The 2016 Colorado Z71 Trail Boss builds on the capability of Chevrolet’s Z71 off-road truck suspension package with more aggressive tires and off-road-inspired appearance enhancements.

An all-new sport bar with LED trail lighting makes the new edition of the Trail Boss instantly identifiable. It’s complemented by black-finished 17-inch aluminum wheels matched with aggressive Goodyear Wrangler DuraTec® 265/65R17 all-terrain tires, bold fender flares and tubular assist steps. It also features a black bowtie grille emblem and a spray-on bedliner, and a set of all-weather floor mats inside the truck.

The Colorado Z71 Trail Boss is available on Z71 models with the extended and crew cab bodies, and in 2WD or 4WD. Like the Midnight Edition, it will also be available with the 2.5L and 3.6L engines, as well as the 2.8L Duramax diesel.
